Ikomoni: Okay, first question. What are the top three songs highlighting women empowerment?

LeMore-Monroe: Oh, this is a good one. 

Ikomoni: I’m going to start off with Whitney Houston, “I’m Every Woman.” I really think that embodies women empowerment.

Ikomoni: Going to put Beyoncé in there with the song “Run the World.” I mean, the lyrics speak for themselves.

Ikomoni: Third, I don’t mean to put Beyonce in there again, but I think Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women” should go in there.

Ikomoni: You got a solid list? Independent woman was on my list as well. 

LeMore-Monroe: Okay,number one I have Aretha Franklin “Respect.

LeMore-Monroe: It’s like an anthem. It talks about putting my foot down and knowing my worth. It’s great to sing along too. Who doesn’t love that song? 

LeMore-Monroe: I also have Whitney Houston with Cece Winans, “Count on me.”

LeMore-Monroe: When it comes to women’s empowerment it’s about being able to lean on each other which is huge to me. 

LeMore-Monroe: And then lastly, I’m going with Remy Ma “Conceited.”

LeMore-Monroe: Like it’s the song I listen to when I’m getting ready to go out. Especially when I’m doubting myself. 

Ikomoni: Love it. I love it. That’s a good list.
